But now it seems like the new launch from AMD (Radeon RX 5700XT) is taking its place. So that the company is now stopping the production of Radeon VII.
Radeon VII was really a good GPU for an enthusiast with the 16GB of HBM2 VRAM. And provides very good performance, but a real test bench the GeForce RTX 2080 is still better than Radeon VII is gaming. The margin is just 3-4 percent.
And Radeon RX 5700XT is just 5-12% weaker than the Radeon VII at a lower price just $399 (compared to Radeon VII $699). As the Nvidia is launching its Super RTX 2080 soon, Radeon VII has no chance to stand against it. Radeon RX 5700 series are also using newer 7nm die size at low cost. Which provides more performance at low cost compared to Radeon VII and RX 5700 series uses less power to give you better performance. Which mean performance per watt is better in the latest Navi GPUs when compared to outdating Radeon VII.
The interesting fact is that the Radeon VII launched in March 2019 and as per rumors the production is ending. It was a very life for AMD Radeon VII.
So if want your hands on Radeon VII, then hurry up and grab one before it vanished from the market. But if you want same performance the 5700 series proving better value for money and AMD launched only 2 GPUs ( RX 5700 and RX 5700XT). And we are hoping more NAVI GPUs in near future.
